Palin's Snowmobile Team Sponsored by Venezuelan Oil Company
Political affiliations set to the side, it seems Sarah Palin has a new enemy and it isn't the Democratic Party, but comedian Kathy Griffin. The D-List star has become best buds (hopefully they aren't bumping uglies) with Levi Johnston. Since their friendship began, Kathy disdain for Sarah has grown.
Palin parody writer: NBC added laughs to Leno visit
Geez, you'd think with all her money, that Sarah Palin could sponsor Todd's snow machine racing. Yeah, better to take money from a dictator you condemn.
I have a shortened version of my usual page today due to my limited Internet connection. Mea culpa.
Obama has signed a bill to increase tourism to the United States. Tourism is way
down, which is surprising. You'd think people from foreign countries would want
to come here to see where their American jobs originated." –Jay Leno
"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad now says that 9/11, the attacks on the United States on 9/11, were fabricated. He says the whole thing was an elaborate hoax. I'm skeptical. I think I'll wait to see what Kim Jong-il says." –David Letterman
"In the morning here at CBS, they have 'The Early Show.' Tomorrow on 'The Early Show,' host Harry Smith is having a live colonoscopy. I know what you're thinking: Finally, real breakfast fun. Here we go. Bring it on. Welcome to the Obama health care plan, ladies and gentlemen. That's how it's going to work." –David Letterman

"And I love this. Radio host Rush Limbaugh says he will leave the United States if health care reform passes. Well, if that doesn't get the Democrats to rally, nothing will." –Jay Leno
Subject: Greedy bastards
Lisa, WTF is wrong with the US? We are continuing the for-profit-health-care in this country which got us into this mess. We're fighting two wars that Bush started and the news media is either entertainment or propaganda. Iran continues to threaten us, possibly because they are smack dab in between Iraq and Afghanistan. Iran-Contra was never mentioned by the media during the Bush years. Iran F**king Contra
Talk about not connecting the dots.
Invasion of Iraq
Am I the only one who sees this?
Jake, alone too much in my cabin in the snow
I see it too, Jake.
I love the dots you connected. Here's my rant on the dots.
Ronald Raygun and Papa Bush played kissy face with Saddam in the 80s, via Don Rumsfeld, and gave Saddam weapons. Then they turned around and gave weapons to Saddam's enemy, Iran. These "great American leaders" did not quite create stability in the region, did they?
In 2003, "Saddam tried to kill my Dad" was uttered from the lips of George W. Bush and seven years later, 4380 American lives lost and America is bombarded with news about Tiger Woods.
I would have watched a report/documentary about the Bush's lengthy and close connection to the Middle East. I'm still waiting to see one. Hey, Biography Channel, how about it?
Radio has been right wing for almost 20 years. Seriously, is closet racist Rush Limbaugh worth his latest contract of $400 million? And that Glenn Beck needs a complete makeover by Queer Eye For The Straight Guy, starting with a well fitted straight jacket.
In 2000 the right wing mocked John McCain's POW status when he was running for the Republican primary for president.
In 2001, a Democrat, Gary Condit was raked over the national media coals for a year because his former aide, Chandra Levy was missing. Yet, at the same time a Republican, Joe Scarborough, had a dead aide, Lori Klausutis, found in his office and not a word on national TV. Amazing, a dead aide is found in a US Congressman's office, post Monica Lewinsky, Chandra Levy, and it doesn't make national news. And now Scarborough has his own show on MSNBC.
FoxNews is only fair and balanced to people of hate and/or paranoia. MSNBC caved in to Bush by firing its top rated show host, Phil Donahue, during the run up to the Iraq War, because he opposed the war. MSNBC gave us SPITBALL with Chris Matthews, a creepy "Democrat" if there ever was one.
In 2004 they mocked John Kerry's purple heart. Remember the band aids with the purple heart worn proudly at the Republican convention? Isn't the mocking of a veteran's service unpatriotic?
And saddest of all, they mocked wheelchair bound veteran, Senator Max Cleland, from Georgia and put in a right winger who never served in the military. The right wing is very good at spin by easily turning their party against veterans. All the while Dick Cheney had five deferments to keep him out of Vietnam and Dubya never served in a war. Yeah, great experience those two had in war, which explains the mess they've made.
I believe Dan Rather's downfall was orchestrated by Bush via Karl Rove. It was a double payback for the tough interview Rather did with Papa Bush when he was running for president back in 1988 and the fact that Rather shed light on George W. Bush's shoddy Texas National Guard service, with gaps of no service recorded. Think about it, George Washington had more accurate military records than George W. Bush. And how dare we question it.
The media didn't kowtow to Bill Clinton but they did to Bush especially in election 2000 and the run up to the Iraq invasion. We knew the color of Monica's dress but we didn't need any evidence to invade Iraq. There's a reason for that. Hillary was right, there was and still is a vast right wing conspiracy.
I nickednamed this conspiracy back in 2003, a "slow motion coup d'état" because my belief is the only way to change this country is from within and that is exactly what they did. They bought most of the media through lobbying for changes in our media laws well over a decade ago, and allowed this "new" media to monopolize and spread their right wing propaganda.
And look where we are today, the healthcare bill is being held up by politicians that are more concerned about the unborn than the born.
Or so they claim.
My belief is that the Internet will eventually set us free, as long as the right wing doesn't own it.

But Can He Spell Potato?
Ben Quayle was born two days after his father, Dan, was
first elected to Congress, and remembers well tossing a football with him on
Capitol Hill between votes. He could have lived without the constant mocking of
his family — particularly the whole potato thing — but his memories of
Washington are largely gauzy and pleasant.
“It was time for me to stop yelling at the TV,” said Mr. Quayle, 33, in an interview at a cafe here, “and throw my hat in the ring.”
"Rush Limbaugh says if the healthcare bill passes, he will leave the country. The Democrats are upset, because if they knew that, they would have passed the bill years ago." –Craig Ferguson
